My little brother had put a pattern lock on my old phone. I can't lose any data from that phone as It has many important contacts in it. so I'm not going for a factory reset. I had recently changed my password of my gmail account. Now I cannot access my phone through that gmail account. What can I do? The phone is Samsung Galaxy y with android 2.3.5.
